I certainly hope I’m wrong. I certainly hope it doesn’t come to this. And yet I am concerned. Will Christian conservatives in America take their foot off the gas if Trump is reelected? Will we somehow put our trust in the government to save our nation from moral and cultural decline? Will we rely on the White House to fight our battles for life and liberty? Or will it take an overtly hostile president to awaken us from our all-too-common complacency and compromise?
For decades it has been clear that serious change needed to come to the Church of America. For decades it has been clear that we needed a revolution in the Church – by which I mean dramatic reformation and renewal – before we could see the tide turn in our land.
Yet it seems that it has taken the COVID-19 crisis to shake us into action. Finally, on a large, national scale, we are rethinking how to do church and how to be the church. We are looking outside the four walls of our congregational buildings. We are moving beyond “spectator Christianity.” We are taking public stands against unfair government practices. We are waking up.
In addition, the radical nature of the protest movement (in contrast with legitimate issues concerning reconciliation and justice) is waking us up.
I’m talking about the radical agendas of the BLM movement and Antifa and the growing army of cultural anarchists and political socialists.
These extreme and destructive groups have also helped to awaken slumbering believers, enabling us to see with our physical eyes the very real spiritual war we are fighting. And all this underscores the importance of the November elections.
But if Trump is re-elected, will we be lulled into a false sense of security? Will we somehow think that, because he is such a fighter, he will fight our battles for us?
Although Joe Biden is the presidential candidate for the Democratic Party, should he win, vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris could very likely become president within the next four years. The consequences would be daunting.
As a Christian friend (and native Californian) recently expressed to me via email, “She terrifies me. At least Biden has a purported Catholic faith and takes a ‘pragmatic’ view re: his political stance on abortion… whereas Harris is vehemently anti-life in every conceivable way.”
As for Biden, he already shifted dramatically left during the campaign, abandoning his historic support for the Hyde Amendment, to cite one important example. And it was Biden, as vice president, who spoke out publicly in favor of same-sex “marriage” before President Obama made his real views known. And it was Biden who earlier this year tweeted, “Let’s be clear: Transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time.”
